I just wanted to give an update as to what has been going on with me. I now have to see my Dr every 2 weeks for the FFN test. I dont like them but I want to make sure my little one doesnt come early. I know these tests arent 100% accurate, but it gives us a little bit of an idea if I will *possibly* go into labor within a 2 week time frame.
I havent gone back to L&D with contractions. My Dr gave me a script for trib to take as I need them. They are a low dose (5mg) and I can take them every 4 hrs if needed. Its better then a shot in the butt IMO lol. I dont like the way they make me feel so I try to push as long as I can before I take one. Its hard to take care of an 18 month old when you have the shakes really bad.
These past 2 days have been the worse with the contractions. Last night they ended up 5 mins apart and were regular so I took the trib, drank lots of water, took a hot bath, and went to bed. Today hasnt been too much better except for the amount of time between contractions. They are still regular, but about 10-15 mins apart. When I lay the little one down I will be taking the meds again and probably going to bed so I dont have to feel the side effects as bad. I see my Dr again tomorrow for another FFN test. Im sure it will come back negative, but its better to make sure I suppose (can you tell I dont like having this test done lol).
So, thats what has been going on with me lately. Sorry I have been kinda MIA from the group lately. I have just been trying to rest as much as possible. Take care everyone!!!
